    Times Square

    So he goes to Pakistan for five months and comes back and plants a car bomb in Times Square.

    In Pakistan he learnt this was part of jihad in the name of Allah, and it is holy and wholesome to kill infidels in large numbers in the name of Allah.

    This is being replicated all over the world, not least here. But our police have caught them just before they let bombs off on subways, football stadiums, army barracks, a nuclear reactor, and shopping malls.

    And the police brought them before the Criminal Courts where they have only the best defence and where they have been convicted of waging jihad against civilians.

    But it is their demeanour in Court that is most interesting. For they show no remorse and refuse to recognise the jurisdiction of the Court.

    The US Government essentially does the very same thing. Through the auspices of technology. They call them drones.

    Dude, if this guy really wanted to make a successful bomb, he would have stayed in the United States and just looked online.

    You don't even need to look online! Just study some episodes of Mythbusters closely. They blow up cars all the time.

    I am on the side of liberal democracy and freedom of speech. And we shall defeat the jihadi.

    I find it difficult to understand why anyone would turn against their own people when they are under attack.

    It's called treachery.

    Obviously, you share the same mental disconnect of the jihadist.

    Self-inflicted stupidity can be deadly.

    Fair enough, but do you acknowledge there is a moral difference between targeting combatants, political leaders, and.or industry/infrastructure (even if civilians are killed as collateral damage), and targeting civilians with the goal of killing as many non-combatants as possible?

    Keep in mind you are speaking to a critic of American imperialism.
